Getting to Montpellier

Flights available using British Airways and Ryan Air
E-Mail :
aérodrome Montpellier Méditerranée-34130 Mauguio
Tel : 04 67 20 85 85

Taxis & Bus Service (15 mins to city centre)

By Car :

Don't, is our glib suggestion.

For those determined souls with no alternative :

Getting to the City is easy enough ( leave the A9, which skirts the south side of the city, from the North at Sortie Est and take the D66, avenue Pierre Mendès-France, to the centre. From the South, leave at Sortie Sud and at the Rond-Point des Prés d'Arènes take avenue de Maurine) but driving in to and around the city is a difficult feat given the tricky nature of the one way traffic system.

Parking :

There are parking metres on the streets encircling the 'Centre Historique' and substantial underground car parks.
Sightseers can take advantage of the car park directly below place de la Comédie. Our recommendation is that you use the car park below the 'Polygone' shopping mall. This is considerably cheaper and scarcely less handily placed for visiting the city.

By Train :

The train station is conveniently situated in the city's centre. (Place Auguste Gilbert, Tel : 0467920143) With the recent extension of the TGV line to Nimes, you can take a train from Waterloo, London, change once at Lille or Paris and be in Montpellier eight hours later.
